He accepted the challenge to write and direct the lyrics and also add some vocals in for good measure. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did writing and recording it. Appreciated for their unique blend of thrashy, punked out grindcore that spawned nominations for Metal Hammer Golden Gods and ARIA awards, the five-piece returns with a blistering material of four tracks.
We were planning on re-working these tracks for a new album eventually, but when all the restrictions came about, we thought why not get these tracks out there as a special limited-edition seven-inch release? Hell, even the band's bassist himself called "Slattz", incidentally has evidently slept in the same bed with Anselmo, later admitting to Metal Hammer that "he still had a hard-on in the morning". You see, musically, King Parrot were always going to hit Anselmo in one of his very few soft spots anyway.
The man himself has always been a self-confessed lover of extreme metal, particularly grindcore and its many seemingly pointless sub-sub-genres. On Dead Set , King Parrot prove that they simply love to play gnarly deathgrind and have fun at the very same time.
Youngy has the cartoonish vocal style which may or may not annoy the listeners repeatedly throughout the album's minute runtime, but what's really the most important thing here is the musicianship and the members' individual performances. So, we have the breakneck-paced grindcore-influenced songs "Anthem of the Advance Sinner", "Like a Rat", "Punisher" , and the groovier, slower-paced numbers "Need no Savior", "Sick in the Head", "Reject".
Instrumentally, things are just very solid, so much so that it would be hard for a fan of extreme metal not to enjoy at least some part of this record. The guitars are mostly crunchy, the drums are tight and efficient at all times, and the bass work is audible enough not to feel left out. On songs like "Reject", where the intro is basically made up of a neat communicative interplay between bass and guitar work, the band's penchant for more focused songwriting and its collaboration with heavy instrumental performance is quality.
And on the album's definitive highlight, that is the groovy, mid-paced monster "Home is where the Gutter is", you can see glimpses of the band progressing with more complex musical ideas.
